High-quality child care produces a stimulating, secure and loving atmosphere for the little one.

Focusing on children's wellbeing and ecological exposures in child care centers is Essential for several reasons: Since they display exploratory behaviors that put them in direct contact with contaminated surfaces, they're more likely to be vulnerable to some contaminants found. They're also less developed immunologically, physiologically, and neurologically and are more prone to the negative effects of toxins and chemicals. Children spend a whole lot of time in child care settings. Many babies and young children spend as many as 50 hours each week, in child care.

Nationally, 13 million children, or 65 percent of U.S. kids, spend some part of the afternoon in child care and at California alone, roughly 1.1 million children five decades or younger attend child care. In this exact same condition, many adults might also be subjected as roughly 146,000 employees work 40 hours or more a week child care centers. Child care environments include substances which may be harmful for kids. Recent studies suggest that lots of child care environments might contain pesticides, allergens, volatile organic compounds from cleaning agents and sanitizers, and other contaminants which may be toxic to children's wellbeing.

Nevertheless, little is understood about what environmental and chemical exposures they might be getting in these configurations. To fill this gap, we quantified. Outcomes of the study were reported on the California Air Resources Board. Our findings help inform policies to lower accidents to children, encourage training and workshops to educate child care providers about methods to lower children's environmental exposures (ex. Using integrated pest management to decrease pesticide usage ), and search for future research.

In this webinar, we welcomed Lyndsey Hellyn & Stephanie Bennett  Co-Founders, The Curiosity Approach. Lyndsey and Stephanie talked about how educators around the world can adapt their approach to be more modern and be more thoughtful about their educational practices. Educators can do this through technology, curiosity, transforming environments and loose parts play! 

🎤Our Special Guest:

Lyndsey Hellyn & Stephanie Bennett  Co-Founders, The Curiosity Approach

Lyndsey Hellyn and Stephanie Bennett are the co-founders of  The Curiosity Approach, alongside being the Directors of Early Childhood Centres in Birmingham, U.K.  Drawing upon their 50+ years of joint experience working in the sector, The Curiosity Approach is the pedagogy or the “ingredients” used within their own provisions and practice serving thousands of children and their families before becoming a global phenomenon.

🧪Key Learning Outcomes from Lyndsey and Stephanie

  • Babies are born active learners, with a natural curiosity to figure out how the world works. Their eagerness to explore and discover.
  • To truly evaluate the importance of understanding child development and the true unfolding child. It’s a deep meaningful commitment from a mindful team of passionate educators to place CHILDREN, provision, and practice at the center of everything we do.
  • We should fill our environments with neutral tones, soft furnishings, and comfy spaces for children to feel safe, relax or retreat. A haven of safety that is an ‘extension of the home and not a watered-down version of school.
  • Through the use of authentic resources, we also prevent the gender divide of pink and blue toys and we offer opportunities for children to play unrestricted, opening up a world of possibilities to play that would have previously and subconsciously limited play for both genders. Gender diversity is therefore reinforced and encouraged and ensures the quality of experiences for all.
  • Once we understand our why, we are able to clearly articulate what makes us feel fulfilled and drives our behavior to achieve more and make a difference for the children we serve.
